Artist Liz Parkes Draws her Favorite Characters!


[Note from Frolic: We’re so stoked to have artist and bookstagrammer Liz Parkes posting on the site today! She’s rounded up some of her favorite characters and OTPs in adorable drawings that we an’t wait to share with you. Find more of her art on her Instagram!]

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell is such a comfort book of mine, it’s basically become tradition for me to read it every fall. Rainbow always includes such great descriptions of her characters, she’s almost asking you to draw them. I really love capturing that subtle emotion of an especially intimate scene, so of course I went with Lincoln and Beth’s movie theater chapter (swoon, every time!). This was one of the first ever ‘book fanarts’ I made, and I had such great time of it that I kept it going.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Sarah J. Maas- if you’re reading this, I will trade you my firstborn for any updates on Nesta’s and Cassian’s book!! Their hate-fueled sexual tension is what feeds my SOUL, and I’m really crossing my fingers their story is a trilogy because I truly cannot get enough. I really didn’t think I’d be that interested in their relationship when I started the A Court of Mist and Fury, but here I am now, drawing all the angsty fanart.

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

I’ve read so many romances it’s almost impossible to pick a favourite… but if I absolutely had to, it would be The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. It’s an own-voices novel featuring an autistic heroine and a male escort, and is completely worthy of the hype. If you want something refreshing, heartwarming, and completely sexy (and even if you don’t), pick this up asap.

Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren

I was completely star-stucked to be commissioned by Lauren Billings (one half of the fab Christina Lauren writing duo) to draw Josh and Hazel for her and Christina’s ten year anniversary as co-authors! I loved detailed illustrations and had so much fun infusing as many CLo easter eggs as I could into this. My favourite one here is Mia and Ansel’s names on the Fondant au chocolat (a CLo couple I especially adore).

The Hypothesis series by Penny Reid
I hated science with a passion when I was in high school, so that’s a pretty big testament to how much I love the Hypothesis series by Penny Reid. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve re-read Elements of Chemistry, and made sure to wait for all the Laws of Physics books to be released before I started because once I got going, I knew I wouldn’t stop. This turned out to be very accurate. I also have to note this piece showcases TWO books I love, because Devil in Winter is AMAZING!!

  1. Nesta and Cassian will be getting one book. I know there’s going to be at least three more books to come each focusing on a different pairing starting with these two.
